Anal sex yeast infections
Community pharmacists: Underutilized resources in the HIV care team. A vaginal yeast infection is a fungal infection of the vagina or vulva that can cause discomfort, itching and a white discharge. Yeast infections are extremely common: most women will get at least one at some point in their lives. Fortunately, effective treatments are widely available. Potent combination therapy for HIV called ART can strengthen the immune system and greatly reduce the risk for yeast infections occurring in the first place. A yeast infection can also affect the anal area.
